Presented by Radio Silence, a magazine of literature and rock & roll, this special concert event will feature a series of short musical performances and collaborations that have never happened before.
Cult author Sam Lipsyte will reunite his punk band Dungbeetle (featuring James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem/DFA) for their first live performance in 19 years.
In addition, legendary rock critic Greil Marcus will collaborate with Matthew Friedberger of the Fiery Furnaces. They’re keeping their plans pretty secret, but we know they’ll be riffing on Greil’s new book, The History of Rock ’n’ Roll in Ten Songs.
Also at the concert, Radio Silence will release their much-anticipated third print edition, and every attendee will receive a copy of the new 180-page issue included with their ticket. See you there!
Sponsors for the event include MailChimp, Village Voice, WFUV, Flavorpill, PSP, and TypeEngine.
This is a general admission, standing event.
